At the heart of a Petite Cité de Caractère, the Abbey is an architectural gem, managed by the Vendée Department. Founded in 1068, it was granted the status of royal abbey in 1141 by Aliénor d'Aquitaine, then queen of France. It presents one of the few monastic groups of Poitiers that is almost intact with its three elements, including the only Romanesque cloister of the West preserved in its entirety.
Discover the monastic life in the twelfth century through tactile screens, a museum trail on Romanesque sculpture and a medieval instrumentarium.
Have fun with the family: In search of the stone world, workshops, Capernaum at the Abbey! From 5 years, guided tours, adventure books.
Listening to the Romanesque abbey! The capitals of the abbey miraculously take life. In July and August.
In the footsteps of Aliénor. Night show on 25/07, 1st, 8, 15 and 22/08.
